Darcy, editor at her high school paper, and her long-term boyfriend Stan are in their last months of school and already have found places in good colleges. Recently they started to sleep with each other and, surprise, surprise, Darcy gets pregnant. Neither Darcy's mother, who was left by her husband and had to bring up Darcy alone, nor Stan's Catholic parents are very supportive and urge them to have an abortion or give up for adoption respectively. However Darcy's and Stan's love is so intense, they could imagine to have a baby, but this would mean to give up their college careers. Written by

Working with casting director Caro Jones, director John G. Avildsen auditioned over 250 young men, ranging from the widely known to the barely known, in the search for the ideal actor to play Stan opposite Molly Ringwald's Darcy. The process continued until the weekend before the start of production, when the final candidates were screen-tested with Ringwald. In the end, a relatively new face, Randall Batinkoff, was cast in the pivotal role. Avildsen explained: "Having someone new can help a lot in a story. "I saw it happen for the first time in Joe (1970) with Peter Boyle, whom nobody had seen before. It worked in much the same way with Rocky (1976) and Sylvester Stallone, and once again in "The Karate Kid" movies, with Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita. But the biggest thing in Randall's favor was his talent. He had a freshness, a sense of humor, and a spontaneity that I found very engaging". See more »

If you are looking at this comment then I am sure you know what the movie is about. So I won't bore you with a long description of the movie...I will just tell you why I loved it so much. First of all you have Randall Batinkoff starring as Stan...and he is a hottie. Secondly you have a really great love story going on in the middle of what could be a big disaster. This movie will make you laugh and make you cry! I highly recommend you see this movie...You won't be sorry.
